  • Microsoft InfoPath 2010 makes it easier than ever to design electronic forms. InfoPath now includes the Office Fluent UI and allows the creation of powerful, interactive forms, without having to write any code. With a few clicks, Office users can customize SharePoint list forms, add custom layouts and rules to validate the data, and take them offline in SharePoint Workspace.For further detail of what infopath is refer the link http://blogs.msdn.com/b/infopath/archive/2009/07/15/what-s-new-in-infopath-2010.aspx

    Refer the below tutorials for how to create forms

  • Could be used for example as a form for your libraries http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/Blogs/GetThePoint/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?List=8d9e2a99%2Df288%2D47c2%2D916b%2D2f32864f7b82&ID=320&RootFolder=%2A&Web=5e4647a0%2De7d0%2D4626%2Db71c%2Db1ff06402465

    Requires infopath forms service and Enterprise CALs for your users.
